Can’t argue much with TeeBone’s comment. But $2,200 isn’t all that bad for a custom 1911. And if you have to take out a loan, maybe the gun’s not for you.

I have a Rock Island, not fancy but is dependable and shoots nice groups, a Taurus or two that is the same way, as is the Para. All four of those didn’t cost this much. So besides being ‘pretty’ exactly what is the point of owning it. It isn’t something you will carry and shoot. I like it, but wouldn’t want to own it.


‘Shouldn’t have to take out a car loan to buy one.
